    Default Would you stay at Holiday Inn?

    Coffee maker, phone book, hairdryer and iron in the room! Pool, kids eat for free, not usually a dead hooker under the mattress!

    Do you like?

    I always remembered their motto from the 80s: "Holiday Inn is number 1 in people pleasing." I've stayed in them and never had a bad night.

    Yep, I have and will again. As mid-range motel chains go, they're my favorite.

    I used to love their gaudy, over-the-top signs . . .

    Those signs were classics.

    I have stayed at a Holiday Inn & Suites at the beach and it put everything else to shame. Hate to admit it, but it was very nice.

    FULL kitchen, and I mean, full size fridge/microwave/dishwasher/utensils/pots and pans and they provided dishwasher and dish detergent. And it was a hotel, so you still get the advantages of maid service, etc.

    And this was a Suite, so it was 3 rooms. Awesome with kids! And had a jacuzzi and a very nice deck overlooking the ocean (ocean front room).

    So, I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Suites if you can find em!

    Don't forget to pick up the mattress for the porn library. Always a gem tucked in between the mattress and the boxspring.

    Look next time, it will be there.

    Oh you know there is!

    The question is whether or not they serve up breakfast in a bag.

    During my little road trip to Seattle and back we stayed at a variety of Motel 6 and Holiday Inns I think. Not once was there a dead hooker smell in the room (I fucking love Four Rooms) and I never got out the black light.

    The places you have to watch out for are those Extended Stay places; full of crackheads and what not.

    Yep, I used to travel and frequently stay in hotels. It became a running joke to see who had the most porn stashed in their room. Winner was an old railroad line hotel Ottawa.

    I grab the magazines with a baggie and throw it out. Never understood if it was an embarrassment issue or sharing their porn with other men. Good luck battling the look or not look in your next hotel.

    Still loving the Holiday Inn.
